(South Salem, NY, USA)
I hope you can help my friend. I have what I believe to be a sick aeonium. I think it may have a fungus on the leaves? There are brown spots on the bottoms and they are falling off much faster than they are growing, there are very few leaves left... before I found this page I pulled off a few of the lower leaves that seemed to be infected to prevent it from spreading to the new growth.
I started it from a cutting years ago and it has been growing in my windowsill for years. I live in NY and now that I found your page, and finally found its name, I assume it might be a bit cold which is why it never produced shoots. A few months ago I repotted it with fresh soil (along with all of my other friends) because of a mealy bug infestation. It has never looked this sad before, even during the winter months.
Thank you for your consideration.
